A few months ago in Japan, you could feel that the machine was revving up to start delivering anything and everything Star Wars to the nations' eyeballs. Giant posters appeared in Shibuya station, and there was even a Star Wars newspaper that appeared in convenience stores.
And now, with Episode 7 just a few months away, the product flow has begun, starting with branded snacks by Lotte.

For decades, Lotte has put out dozens of Bikkuriman sticker lines. They're little stickers that come as a prize with a chocolate biscuit. But until recently, there were no Star Wars series. Now we have two, with illustrations done in an anime style. One covers episodes 1, 2, & 3, and one covers episodes 4, 5, and 6. There are 24 glossy stickers in each set.
